Wes Hayden

Jake Pavelka, just announced as the newest Bachelor Tuesday, may already be getting competition from on-screen rival and fellow Bachelorette contestant Wes Hayden.

"I've actually got something going on right now that's on NBC. They want me on just because of the popularity that I had from ABC," Hayden tells TVGuide.com exclusively. "There's something cooking in the works and you just might say ... me and Jake with the feud on The Bachelorette ... it might be weird to see Jake on ABC and Wes on NBC."

"We have been approached by a network for another opportunity," said Hayden's manager, Buck Judkins. However, Judkins would not confirm if the network in question was NBC. "It's too early to tell."

NBC did not return calls for comment.

Hayden made waves on the latest season of The Bachelorette when Pavelka came clean to Bachelorette Jillian Harris about Hayden. Pavelka said Hayden had an off-screen girlfriend and was purely on the show for ulterior motives, namely to further his singing career.

Nominated for really favorite villain at the Fox Reality Channel's Really Awards, Hayden still contends he's not the bad guy millions of viewers saw and says he still keeps in touch with Harris today.

"We talk frequently on Facebook. Everything's fine. Jillian, I love you, you're my girl, I want the best for you," Hayden said.
